Acoustic Guitar FX fills in the gaps of other guitar libraries and provides an unusual but unique addition to your sampled library palette. The guitar used was a Martin Dreadnought D-1GT using John Pearse strings. All of the fx are picked using a medium pick, with the exception of the low slap notes.

The recordings were left virtually alone with minimal post-processing in order to give the user complete control over the sound. Acoustic Guitar FX uses 5 round robins on each of the 3 velocity layers for most samples
